Pumpkins: Creepy Crawly Pumpkin Posies

This is the perfect centerpiece for a Halloween party. It's really very simple and lots of fun to put together.

You'll need:

1 Medium Pumpkin
Fresh Flowers
1 Cup (that will fit inside the pumpkin)
Plastic Spiders
Ice cream scoop to clean out the pumpkin

Use the top of the cup you chose to trace a circle on the top of the pumpkin. Cut the top off along the line. Clean out the inside of the pumpkin, scraping it very good with the ice cream scoop.

Insert the cup and fill 1/3 of the cup with water.

Now arrange the flowers inside the cup.

If you are just having an Autumn dinner party or wanted a beautiful centerpiece for Thanksgiving, you would stop here. But I am making this for Halloween, so I need to turn up the creepy!

Place the spiders on the flowers, working them into the petals to get them to stay. If you want to have some crawling up the pumpkin then spray the bottoms of the plastic spiders with spray glue and the apply them to the pumpkin.


I am doing a lot more with pumpkins this Fall... stay tuned! xo Lizzie
